We know mums today are on the go and want to grab something quick and easy that delivers on taste and convenience. By expanding the Richmond range, we are giving shoppers' choice, delivering a variety of products to suit their family's needs from a brand they know and trust.

Kerry Foods is expanding its £150m Richmond portfolio and teatime offering with the introduction of a new range of teatime products – Mini Sausages and Mini Burgers.
Available from 10th March, the exciting innovation comes on the back of the successful Richmond Mini Meatball launch, which landed in the top 15% of FMCG launches for 2013.
Richmond is perfectly placed to drive category growth through innovation. The new range will include three chilled products; meatballs, sausages and burgers, and two within the frozen sector; meatballs and sausages. By offering consumers greater choice whilst leveraging its credibility as a trusted family brand, Richmond is set to drive trial and attract new consumers to the category.
The new range has been developed to bring variety to the teatime occasion. Its key benefit of cooking in just eight minutes makes it the perfect solution for quick, convenient children’s mealtimes for busy mums. The packaging will capture the attention of consumers and will highlight the brand’s unique proposition of good value mealtime solutions.
Caroline Segalen, marketing manager for Richmond, comments: “We have identified an opportunity in the market to offer a teatime solution for mums that will enable retailers to drive incremental sales and unlock category growth. We know mums today are on the go and want to grab something quick and easy that delivers on taste and convenience. By expanding the Richmond range, we are giving shoppers’ choice, delivering a variety of products to suit their family’s needs from a brand they know and trust.”
Segalen continues: “The launch will be supported throughout the year with three big bursts of TV advertising, with a 10 second tag following the 20 second core advert, reaching 92% of mums. Retailers are encouraged to merchandise the new range alongside Richmond sausages and utilise in-store Point of Sale material to drive trial and increase brand repertoire.”
